Telpay Hosts a Payments Panel at IPBC Ignite 2017

We’re excited to announce that at the upcoming Institute of Professional Bookkeepers of Canada (IPBC) National Conference – Ignite 2017 – in Richmond Hill, ON, Telpay will be hosting an exciting roundtable featuring thought leaders in the payment and business industry!

IPBC is a member based association to help bookkeepers become more successful and gain better recognition within the bookkeeping profession. IPBC provides the environment, knowledge, and resources its members need to develop excellence in bookkeeping, through certification, education, networking, advocacy, information, and research.

The panel discussion aims to address Canada’s Evolving Payment Needs & Building a More Efficient Payment System for Industry. Electronic payment adoption has increased and is quickly developing to be an indispensable part of business. Accounting and bookkeeping processes are rapidly transforming, and it has become apparent that improvements are needed in the payment system to keep pace such as quicker notification of returned debits, frequent and faster payment processing between the banks, and improved oversight to protect all users.

The voice of payment system users should be heard loud and clear so that the needs of business, as well as those of the banks, are reflected in the new system. It’s a unique opportunity to engage with key stakeholders of the Canadian payment system and to hear their perspective.

Telpay’s panel of experts reflects a diversity of views from the payment and business industry, which includes leaders from Payments Canada, the Canadian Federation of Independent Business and the Department of Finance.

We are honoured to have the following industry leaders as part of our panel:

● John Zajic, Vice President, Trust Operations, Telpay Inc.
● Janet Lalonde, Director, Modernization, Payments Canada
● Dan Kelly, President & CEO, Canadian Federation of Independent Business (CFIB)
● Hugues Vaillancourt, Chief of Payments Policy, Financial Sector Policy, Finance Canada
● Marilyn Benninger, Professional Problem Solver

This exciting panel discussion will take place on Thursday, September 28 between 1:45 pm and 2:45 pm at the Sheraton Parkway Hotel. For more information, click here.
